Located just 15 Minutes from Halifax, St. Margaret's Bay is one of the most requested areas in Nova Scotia. The closeness to Halifax is a big draw,plus a newly constructed 4 lane hiway wisks you in to work in no time. The Oceanfront is generally good quality and for boaters, the Bay offers many Islands and day trips as well as many fine marinas.
The winds blow evenly out of the South consistantly all summer long. You can count on the seabreeze to kick in at 1:00 pm every afternoon like clockwork. People come from the eastern seaboard to sail our predictable Bay. Many end up coming back or eventually moving here.
